Drama. Based on the Marcel Proust novel. Charles Swann is a wealth and elegant young man. One day, he is introduced to Odette de Crécy, a woman with whom 'he might have the chance of getting somewhere'. He falls in love with her and, for an entire day and night, he chases her across Paris. He comes upon her a few times, but she always succeeds in eluding him. When he gets hold of her at last, he marries her, but his love (and he himself) will soon die.
